Frequently asked questions:

Q.

What can I expect a police officer to do when I have asked the officer to respond to take a police report?
 

A.

When your Police Officer arrives, he will attempt to obtain the answers to the following questions: WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY and HOW. Answering these questions is the goal of most police reports. Apart from those five questions, what you can expect depends on the nature of the incident you are reporting. Here are several common incidents and your Police Department's procedure:

1.  THEFT: If you are calling to report a theft, the officer will want to obtain information regarding when you last saw your property; who would have had access to the property; the full description of the property including the value and serial number, if you have recorded one; any marks on the property that may help identify it as being your property; and who you might suspect as having taken your property.

2.  BURGLARY: If you are calling to report a burglary our procedure is a little different. A burglary incident is one in which someone has entered your residence, car, or garage, etc. and has removed your property without permission. A burglary incident usually includes a theft incident, therefore we will ask the same questions as in the theft incident. The added element of someone entering your residence, car, garage, etc. means that we will inspect the area entered by the suspect. We will look for evidence that may identify the suspect. If practical, please do not move things, or clean the area prior to police arrival. The police officer will want to see the area of the incident as the suspect left it.
